Very Cool New, Detailed Looks at Man of Steel Toy Fair Figures

Zod Man of Steel Toy Fair Figure

Well I guess you can’t really call these action figures, right? Action figures are still those toys where you can bend their legs and arms and make them do battle, if I recall. These look to be rigidly set on a platform of some sort and made to be put on a shelf and admired, and not played with. Which is a bummer. I mean, sure, they look cool and all (the detail is pretty amazing), but don’t kids still like playing with their toys these days? (Then again, “kids” might not be the main target audience here…)

Anyways, check out your best look at the main characters from Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, “Man of Steel” in toy form yet courtesy of Kotaku.

How crazily detailed does Zod’s armor look? And Jor-el’s, too. I guess you can sort of see the difference between those two and Superman’s threads. One was designed way back in the ’30s (despite some minor alterations for the movie, it’s still the same basic suit Supes has been wearing for what, a 100 years now?), while Snyder and company were probably free to do whatever they wanted with Zod and Jor-el, and it really shows.

Snyder’s “Man of Steel”, starring Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe, and Michael Shannon arrives in theaters June 14th.

    WOW!!! This movie is going to be awesome!

  • Juggernaut

    I’m really starting to like the looks of the suits in the movie. Hopefully it’ll translate well.

      As am I. It’s a very cool look for the Kryptonian aspect. The futuristic yet fantasy styled armor is a nice touch. I can’t wait for this.

    • Aegon the Conqueror

      From what I saw of their armour in the trailers, it looks stunning!

  • NCounter

    These are much cooler figures then the previously shown – Cool defference in colors between Jor-El and Zod and the fact that they are very close to reality, i mean Jor-El with a gun is something already quite interesting…I get the feeling that he will play an even bigger role in the film.

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    Wonder how it must feel to walk into a toy store and to see a toy based on your likeness.

    Why do they need all that armor if they have super strength?

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Nix

      Is it not the case that they DON’T have super strength UNTIL they come to Earth? I take it that’s their Kryptonian armor. I could be wrong, though, Supe’s mythology was never my strong suit.

      • M@rvel

        Is that how it works in the comics? I wasn’t aware that they are only super strong on Earth.

          It’s been ages since I’ve read a Superman comic book, but I believe Superman’s powers comes from being exposed to our sun, and that the other Kryptonians get the same powers when they, too, become exposed to the sun. They might have changed it over the years in the comics, of course.

            Good memory my friend. That is exactly the case. The Yellow Sun of Earth gives Kryptonians their abilities, while under the Red Sun they are just like humans.

            Frankly, I’m surprised they haven’t changed that over the years. Seems like everything gets changed/tweaked eventually in comics.

      Armor is Kryptonian, so they we’re wearing it before they for to Earth, and it’s probably they’re military gear so as soldiers, this is what they’re used to.
